Hannity defends Fox News president Shine amid report

Hannity defended Fox News Channel president Bill Shine on Twitter on April 27, 2017, following a NY magazine report that members of the controlling Murdoch family refused to release a statement of support for the executive.

Following a report that members of the controlling Murdoch family refused to release a statement of support for the executive, Sean Hannity has come out to defend Fox News Channel co-president Bill Shine.

Soon after his first tweet responding to Sherman's story, Hannity tweeted again, apparently referring to Shine, that "somebody high up and inside FNC is trying to get an innocent person fired". He also said that if Shine is let go, "that's the total end of the FNC as we know it".

Citing "three sources briefed on the conversations", the report says that shine has privately told friends that he does not feel that 21st Century Fox co-chairman Rupert Murdoch as been publicly supportive enough of him.

The polarizing host fired off a series of tweets on Thursday afternoon amid rumors Bill Shine was potentially losing support from the Murdochs - particularly James and Lachlan. And Gabe I KNOW WHO it is. Fox News Channel has been under intense scrutiny for months, owing to ousters of both former chief Roger Ailes past year and veteran anchor Bill O'Reilly in recent weeks.

But privately, Shine is expressing concern about his future at the network. "Best Sean." He followed up by tweeting #istandwithbill. Ailes was accused of sexual harassment by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, then removed after the company started an internal probe into the matter and found other salacious allegations, all of which the executive denied.

"Sean is willing to take a bullet for Bill out of loyalty and he knows he's holding a lot of chits there right now too", a source close to the corridors of the Avenue of the Americas located cable newser. The multi-year ratings behemoth and now former Factor host was shown the door last week when reports of an estimated $13 million in sexual harassment settlements by FNC and O'Reilly himself started to escalate his situation with more women coming forward to claim inappropriate actions were directed at them.
